Assuming you're talking about a mailing list where the primary
language spoken is English, then look in the
/usr/local/mailman/templates/en/ directory for files beginning with
"arch". When I do that on my Mailman 2.1.5 installation, I see:
archidxentry.html archidxhead.html archliststart.html
archtocentry.html archidxfoot.html archlistend.html
You will need to copy these to an "/en" subdirectory under
/usr/local/mailman/lists/listname/. Once copied there, edit the file
to suit your requirements, and then I think you're going to need to
stop and restart Mailman in order to get it to pick up the changes.
If you don't have command-line access to the server where these
files are stored, you'll have to get your provider to do this for you.
